Could be the power cord or plug are defective. As I recall, this is an older mechanical machine (old but Good!) so it is probably worth fixing.

with all the stuff you say I think that you should try what I do clean it with canned air. Then change the needle you may have a burred or bent needle. and when you clean the machine make sure to use a qtip with oil on it and swab the bobbin holder it may have broken needle piece stuck in it. if after that is done it still not working then adjust the tension taking care to note the positions first.make sure you change only one at a time and put it aback if it doesn't fix the problem and try another position. you may need to try the specialneedle for the fabric (stretchy or jean type)

Try making sure that the thread is all the way in the tension disk then test it out. I had a similar experience with an old machine.
